Folds, on piano, from our Craigslist-purchased seats

I was pretty sure that Ben Folds was going to put on a memorable show at the Kentucky Center with the Louisville Orchestra. Before last night’s show, I didn’t really know much about Folds. But I knew he had to be more than a mere pop star to get an invite to play with...

At The Vanishing Point, currently playing at Actors Theatre, might not be so riveting if it took place in another city, or another neighborhood. But the way it uses Louisville’s Butchertown neighborhood as an omnipresent character in the lives of one family puts your mind squarely on Story Avenue. Or the Fischer’s meatpacking plant,...

It was “the good war.” That’s how America portrayed its involvement in World War II: a righteous struggle of freedom against tyranny. But America in the 1940s had legal restrictions denying its black citizens the vote, and segregated them in rundown neighborhoods, poor schools and low-paying jobs. Black GIs were assigned to building roads...

The Brothers Size, currently being performed at Actors Theatre, is promoted as a “lyrical tale of brotherly love (that) explores the tension between fear and desire on the elusive road to freedom.” That is accurate, perhaps, but it doesn’t prepare you for the reality of the play’s raw emotions, street language and battle of...

My friend Cyndy Tandy has been working on this idea for several years, so it’s great to see Louisville Uncovered become a reality.

With Paula on Halloween, in the shirt I've worn every year for at least a couple of decades

LUKE: Halloween woo, but not really. Weirdly no one is doing anything for Halloween so it’s mainly just gonna be a usual Friday. Though in school a couple of classes did Halloween-related things like watch the history of Halloween. That was mildly interesting. Unfortunately I had to walk home today and man was it raining hard and...

LUKE: Pretty quick one today. Basically all I want to talk about is something I saw on the askreddit subreddit on Reddit.com, basically the question is what can you just not wrap your head around?

The fire pit at Paula's

LUKE: So I’m gonna use today to mainly talk about a discussion we had throughout the school day with my friends. So one of my friends got a job at Chick-Fil-a which sparked a discussion of whether or not it’s wrong to eat somewhere where you don’t agree with the beliefs of the owner/company. My friend Nico (who never...
